PREFACE. 

IN the Introduction to my Catalogue of the Persian 
Manuscripts in the Library of the University of Cam- 
bridge, published by the University Press in 1896, I traced 
with some detail the history and growth of this department 
of our Library from 1625, when the munificence of George 
Villiers, Duke of Buckingham, secured for us the precious 
Erpenius collection, down to the date of publication, since 
which period we have acquired (mostly by purchase) about 
140 MSS. written in the Arabic character. I do not deem 
it necessary to repeat in this place what I there set down 
on this head, and I shall therefore pass at once to other 
matters. 

The cataloguing of manuscripts, though one of the most 
useful tasks of the Orientalist, is at the same time one of the 
most irksome and tedious, especially in the case of a collection 
formed less by deliberate selection and purchase than by 
fortuitous gifts and bequests. When, therefore, I had com- 
pleted my Persian Catalogue, and had realised how large a 
proportion of unselected manuscripts are practically devoid 
of worth or interest, I earnestly hoped that some one else, 
better qualified for such work than myself, would undertake 
the cataloguing of the remaining Muhammadan MSS., a task 
for which I felt but little inclination. It soon became plain, 
however, that, unless I chose to continue the work myself, 
there was but little likelihood of its being finished at all in 
the near future ; and as an uncatalogued collection of MSS. 
is practically useless, especially to scholars at a distance, I 
resolved to work up the rough notes of all MSS. written in 
the Arabic character (whether Arabic, Persian, Turkish, Urdu, 



Vlii PREFACE. 

Pakhto, Malay or Panjabl) which I had already made when 
engaged in the construction of my Persian Catalogue, and 
issue them, in a compact and condensed form, as a Hand-list 
of Muhammadan Manuscripts ; in order that, pending the 
production of a proper Catalogue raisonne, some clue to the 
contents of this department of our Library might be available 
to other Orientalists. 

The plan which I decided to adopt in the construction of 
this Hand-list aimed primarily at concision, but proved in 
practice much more troublesome than I had anticipated. By 
arranging all the books of which the proper titles could be 
ascertained in alphabetical order (according to the plan 
adopted by that great bibliographer Hajl Khalifa) it seemed 
to me that a considerable economy of space might be effected, 
both by removing the need of a separate Index of titles, and 
also by avoiding any repetition of the bibliographical refer- 
ences. Moreover it appeared to me to be a matter of perfect 
indifference to one who was in search of a particular work 
whether it happened to be bound up in the same cover with 
others or not, so that I decided in the case of composite 
MSS. to treat each portion as an independent unit, and to 
describe the volume as a whole only under one article 
(generally the earliest in the volume). Thus, for instance, 
the Burckhardt manuscript marked Qq. 141 comprises 
three separate treatises by al-MaqrlzI, to wit (i) adh- 
Dhahabu'l-masbuk, (2) l lbaru'n-nahl, and (3) at-Turfatu'l- 
gharlba. Each of these is described separately, according 
to alphabetical order of titles, the first under 3 (No. 442), 
the second under c (No. 664), and the third under J 
(No. 655), by which plan the first (called Qq. 141 1 ) and 
the third (Qq. 14 1 3 ) are respectively associated, each in 
its own place, with another copy of the same work, while 
the whole composite MS. is only described once, under 
article 442, to which a reference is made in the subsequent 
articles. 



PREFACE. IX 

Of course it was evident from the first that there would 
remain a considerable residue of " untitled " MSS., manu- 
scripts, that is to say, which in the nature of things lacked a 
title (such as collections of letters, memoranda, common-place 
books, miscellanies and the like), or which were so mutilated 
as to render identification impossible, or which had accidentally 
been left untitled, and which I could not identify with the 
means at my disposal. These " untitled manuscripts " had, 
therefore, to be arranged according to subjects (the system 
employed by Dr Rieu in his British Museum Catalogues 
being generally followed) in a separate class, which constitutes 
Part II of this volume. 

Lastly, for the Library officials (whose point of view must 
necessarily be bibliographical rather than literary, and by 
whom one work in four volumes is regarded as four manu- 
scripts, while one volume containing four separate works is 
regarded as one) it was necessary to arrange all the MSS. 
according to order of class-marks, and to indicate opposite 
each the article or articles under which its description might 
be found. This portion constitutes Part III of this volume, 
which concludes with an Index of proper names (those of 
authors, scribes and former owners being distinguished by 
appropriate signs, according to the plan adopted in my 
Persian Catalogue), including some titles of books mentioned 
out of the alphabetical order adopted in Part I, and a few 
references of a more general character. 

Such was the plan of the Hand-list as it shaped itself in 
my mind, but in practice I have not been able to carry it out 
with entire consistency. In the first place, some of the titles 
in Part I are, I must confess, more or less fictitious (e.g. Nos. 
174, 186, 2O6, 247, 27O, 438 &c.), being descriptive 
rather than specific ; while the bringing together of most of 
the Epistolary Manuals under the heading Inshd in Part I 
instead of under " Collections of Letters " in Part II is, strictly 
speaking, a violation of the original scheme. Moreover, some 



X PREFACE. 

volumes containing a dozen or more separate small treatises 
have, even when all or most of these treatises had titles, 
been described in Part II under "MSS. of mixed contents" 
(pp. 336-341 infra), contrary to a consistent adhesion to the 
original plan, and, as I am bound to admit, mainly to avoid 
the trouble of so many separate entries. Lastly, while the 
Hand-list was passing through the Press I was appointed for 
one year (June 1899 June 1900) to the newly-established 
post of Curator of the Oriental MSS. in the University 
Library, and naturally took advantage of this circumstance 
to add by purchase, so far as our funds allowed, as many 
desirable manuscripts of this class as possible to our collection. 
Many of these were acquired too late for insertion under their 
titles in Part I, and for them a supplement (pp. 250-272 infra) 
had to be added; while the "most recent additions" (acquired 
during the course of this year) had to be merely recorded at 
the end (pp. 397 et seqq.) with a few brief words of general 
description. 

The title of this Hand-list, again, is open to criticism, 
since it includes a good many Christian and some Hindu 
and ParsI works. The epithet " Muhammadan " is, therefore, 
to be understood as meaning "written wholly or partly in 
the Arabic character," which character is essentially the 
vehicle of Muhammadan literature. Some such brief epithet 
was needed for purposes of definition, and this was the best 
that suggested itself. A more accurately descriptive title 
would have been too cumbrous for ordinary use, and the 
classification of manuscripts in a library according to the 
character in which they are written is evidently the most 
convenient. Of all MSS. written with Arabic letters which 
came within my ken I was bound to take note, but it would 
have been impossible for me to wade through those written 
in the Syriac or Hebrew character, on the chance of coming 
upon Karshuni treatises in the former or Judaeo- Persian or 
Arabic compilations in the latter. I have also included in 



PREFACE. xi 

the Hand-list two MSS. written chiefly in the Pahlavl script 
(Add. 328 and Add. 329), and one ancient Egyptian 
fragment (Add. 1859), as well as certain others (e.g. Mm. 4. 
1 1 and Mm. 5. 26), which, though essentially Muhammadan, 
are written in Latin or some other Western language. 

The obvious defect of the plan which I have adopted in 
the construction of this Hand-list is that, while it is easy for 
any student to ascertain at once whether or no a given work 
or a particular author is represented in our collection, it is 
not possible to see at a glance to what extent the literature 
of a given subject is represented. This, however, is of less 
consequence in a collection like ours (which, compared to 
those of the British Museum, the India Office and the 
Bodleian, is poor and meagre) than it would be in the case 
of one more ample and more representative ; and it may, 
perhaps, be to some extent remedied by the following brief 
list of some of the rarer works which we possess. Only the 
more important of these are here mentioned, and, for simplicity, 
they are arranged under a few headings.

Hand-list, but merely mentioned in their proper places, with a reference 
to the description contained in the Persian Catalogue. 

Other works less often cited, and with less abbreviated 
titles, are : 

Berl. A. C. (or "Cat. of Berlin Arabic MSS."). Verzeichniss der 
Arabischen Handschriften der Kbniglichen Bibliothek zu Berlin, by 
W. Ahlwardt (Berlin, 1887- ). 

Berl. P. C. (or "Cat. of Berlin Persian MSS.," or "Berlin Pers. 
Cat."). Verzeichniss der Persischen Handschriften, etc., by Wilhelm 
Pertsch (Berlin, 1888). 

Berl. T. C. (or "Cat. of Berlin Turkish MSS.," or "Berlin Turk. 
Cat."). Verzeichniss der Tiirkischen Handschriften, etc., by Wilhelm 
Pertsch (Berlin, 1889). 

The titles of the other books most frequently cited are, I 
think, sufficiently clearly indicated. Chief amongst these are : 

Carl Brockelmann's Geschichte der Arabischen Litteratur (Weimar, 
1897- ) ; A. G. Ellis's Catalogue of Arabic [printed] Books in the 



XVI PREFACE. 

British Museum (vol. i, 1894) ; the Fihrist (ed. Fliigel, Roediger and 
Miiller, Leipzig, 1871-1872); J. R. A. 5., the Journal of the Royal 
Asiatic Society of Great Britain and Ireland; A. von Kremer's Cultur- 
geschichte des Orients unter den Chalifen (2 vols., Vienna, 1875-1877) ; 
Notices et Extraits des Manuscrits de la Btbliotheque du Roi (1787- ; 
later, de la Btbliotheque Nationale) ; Baron Victor Rosen's catalogues of 
Arabic and Persian MSS. in vols. i, iii, and vi of the Collections scienti- 
fiques de rinstitut des Langues Orient ales du Ministere des Affaires 
ttrangeres (St Petersburg, 1877, 1886 and 1891); de Slane's Catalogue 
des Manuscrits arabes de la Btbliotheque Nationale (Paris, 1883-1895);

Naturforscher (Gottingen, 1840); Ibid., Die Geschichtschreiber der Araber 
und ihre Werke (Gottingen, 1882) ; Z. D. M. ., the Zeitschrift des 
Deutsches Morgenldndisches Gesellschaft ; and a few other books and 
periodicals which will be identified without difficulty. 

It is, I confess, with no little satisfaction that I pen these 
last lines of the Hand-list, which, defective and faulty as it 
may be, represents the labour (intermittent, it is true, but 
seldom interrupted for long during term-time) of some eight 
years. That this labour was by no means merely mental will 
be readily understood when I mention that during this period 
I have not only numbered with my own hand the pages of 
most of these manuscripts, but have carried almost every one 
of them at least once from the Library to my rooms and back. 
What the whole collection weighs I do not know ; but, taking 
into consideration the staircases at both ends of the transit, 
I should imagine that the number of foot-pounds of physical 
labour which this volume represents would (were it worth 
calculation) be very far from insignificant. 

Yet for all the weariness of the task, it was not without 
compensations : the occasional discovery of some inestimable 
treasure; the wider knowledge of Oriental palaeography, 
bibliography and literary history which it compelled ; the 
growing admiration of that great civilisation of Islam which 
we are even now but beginning to comprehend. In the midst 
of that disgust which would at times overpower me as I waded 
through the crabbed characters of some particularly dusty, 



PREFACE. xvii 

dirty, disreputable document, incapable, as it would seem, of 
awakening any spark of interest, how often would it happen 
that some utterly human voice would reach me from the 
dead scribe, bidding me be ashamed to grudge a few brief 
moments to the monument of his long labour. Of such 
echoes from the past, one especially runs in my mind with 
insistent iteration, and with it I am fain to conclude*.

One volume, defective at beginning, containing part (775. 
the letter p) of a large biographical dictionary of eminent 
men of Baghdad. The volume is described in an English 
note at the beginning as part of the well-known work of 
al-Khatlb al-Baghdadl, and more accurately in another note 
by Professor Samuel Lee as " the third volume of a supple- 
ment" to that work. That al-Khatlb [d. A. H. 463] is not the 
author is evident from the fact that many of the biographical 
notices embodied in the volume refer to persons who died 
early in the 7th century of the hijra (A.H. 615 is the latest date 
that I have noticed) ; and from the large scale on which the 
work is conceived it seems impossible that this should be 
the entire third volume, seeing that it contains only names 
beginning with the letter c, such as the names compounded 
with j^, the names j*s>, oU^, ^*, ^^ LT-**' l>^ &c., 
these names not being arranged in strict alphabetical order. 
Numerous supplements were written at different times of al- 
Khatlb's great work, two of which, as we learn from //. A7/.

scholarly naskh of 1 3th century ; headings in red ; not dated. 
A copy by Prof. J. Palmer of a note of Dr Lee's, written in 
answer to the enquiries of M. Amari of Paris, runs as follows : 
" There can be no doubt that this MS. was written by the 
same scribe who wrote out the Arabic Gospels from which 
Erpenius printed his Arabic Testament. This MS. is in the 
Public Library here, with the class-mark Gg. 5. 33. And 
this MS. has a date attached to it in the same handwriting"... 
(see No. 68 supra) " which, being the date of the holy martyrs, 
answered to A. D. 1272. Some account is given of this 
MS. in my Prolegomena to Bagster's Polyglot Bible. See 
also Erpenius' Arabic Testament." The Nadkmu'l- JawJiar 
(Annals of Eutychius) of Sa'Id b. Batrlq fills the bulk of the 
volume (ff. 4 b ~375), the Chronicle of Sicily occupying ff. 376*-

Fragments of a very extensive history of the Caliphs (or

These fragments amount in all to 90 ff. [of 27-2 x 18-3 c. and 
31 11.; fairly clear but ungraceful naskh, apparently of I5th 
century] and form five separate portions of the history, 
separated by lacunae of greater or less extent. Besides the 
division into years there is also a division into chapters, of 
which the numeration commences anew for the 'Abbasid 
Caliphs, each chapter comprising the reign of a Caliph. The 



HAND-LIST OF MUHAMMADAN MSS, 2<j 

first fragment (ff. 1-6) contains part of chs. xii and xiii (reigns 
of Yazld III and Ibrahim: A. II. 126). The second fragment 
(ff. 7-16) contains part of chs. xiii and xiv, and chiefly con 
of notices of persons who died in A. H. 126, especially of 
Walld II. The third fragment is a single leaf (f. 17) contain- 
ing four entire and two incomplete biographical notices of 
persons who died about A. H. 126-128. The fourth fragment 
(ff. 18-42) contains part of chs. i and ii (reigns of as-$affah 
and al-Mansur, A. H. 133-138) of the 'Abbasid period. The 
fifth) largest and last fragment (ff. 43-90) comprises part of 
chs. xi-xv (reigns of al-Muntasir al-Mu'tamid, A.H. 247-264). 
Amongst other authorities, our historian cites (f. I5 a , 4th 1. 
from end) the Mawdrtdt of Shaykh Jamalu'd-Dln b. al-jawzl 
(d. A. H. 597 : see de Slane's Ibn Khallikan, vol. ii, pp. 96-98), 
so that he evidently wrote subsequently to that date. The 
manner in which he speaks of the Imam al-Hasan b. 'All al-

Transcript by Sir James Redhouse of 'All b. al-Hasan al- 
Khazrafis History of the Rasull dynasty of Yemen, properly 
entitled al-'iiqudu'l-hthiiyya fl akhbdrfd-Dawlattr-Rasuliyya, 
together with his English translation, annotations, indices, 
tables, and maps, in five volumes. Vol. i, Add. 2937, 
comprising 769 pp. of 17*6 x I ro c. and 15 11., contains the 
text, transcribed in Sir James Redhouse's neat, scholarly 
naskh, fully pointed, from the unique MS. in the India Office 
Library (a gift of Warren Hastings) described at pp. 203-204 
of Loth's Catalogue (No. 710). In a short Arabic preface 
Sir James Redhouse explains the motives which led him to 
transcribe, translate, and annotate this work, and, in gratitude 
for the degree of Doctor of Letters conferred upon him in June 
1884, to present the completed results of this immense labour 
to the University of Cambridge, there to be preserved in the 
Public Library. The substance of this preface is repeated in 
the English preface of vol. ii, Add. 2938, which, together 
with vol. iii, Add. 2939, contains the English translation, 
preceded by tables of contents and an introduction of 1 1 5 pp. 
The paging in these two volumes is consecutive ; the first 
contains pp. cxv + 741, the second ends with p. 1538. These 
two vols., as well as the two following, are of a larger size than

the vol. containing the text, viz. 19*8 x I2'2 c. and 19 11. The 
fourth vol. of the series, Add. 294O, containing the Annota- 
tions, comprises 670 pp.; the last, Add. 2941, containing 
the Index, Tables, and Maps, 405 pp.; including 16 pp. of 
print, vis. Sir J. Redhouse's Tentative Chronological Synopsis 
of the History of A rabia and its Neighbours from B. C. 
500,000 (?) to A. D. 679 (Triibner, 1887). A note on p. 405 of 
this vol. gives Aug. 8th, 1888, as the date whereon Sir James 
Redhouse terminated this labour of love. The five volumes 
are handsomely bound in tooled morocco and gilt-edged, and 
are enclosed in a morocco case.

Malay, the first (ff. i b -i8 a ) on the Interpretation of Dreams ; 
the second (ff. I9 a -25 b ) a fragment of a religious treatise, 
defective at beginning. It is thus described by Dr Van 
Ronkel of Leyden to whom it was submitted : " Not dated ; 
small octavo. Two different fragments are bound together and 
intermixed." [The pages have now been replaced in the right 
order.] "I... is a treatise on interpretation of dreams. The 
author says in the introduction that his work is divided into 
twenty chapters, viz. dreams of heaven; of men; of animals; 
of trees, mountains, houses and all lofty things ; of clothes ; 
of the sea and rivers ; of birds ; of reptiles ; of meat ; of 
perfumes and odours ; of faithfulness towards God ; of fire ; 
of towns and villages ; of weapons ; of all kinds of deeds ; of 
earth, stone and jewels ; of fruit ; of music ; of fishing and 
fowling ; of various things. But the MS. ends abruptly at 
ch. vi. 1 1... A fragment of a religious book. It presents 
many Arabic phrases and words, and appears to be translated 
from the Arabic. This fragment treats of the knowledge of 
God's Power ; of the behaviour of men towards God ; and of 
the way to God. There is nothing remarkable about the 
spelling or language of either part."

126 HAND-LIST OF MUHAMMADAN MSS. 



This notice is interesting, and would be much more so if, 
as the colophon seems to imply, the work had been composed 
during the poet's lifetime, the dates given for his death 
varying between A. H. 330 and 343 (Ethe"'s Riidagi, der 
Sdmdnidendichter, p. 673 of No. 25 of the Nachrichten d. 
Kbnig. Gesellsch. d. Wissensch. d. G. A. Univ. zu Gottingen\ 
while this MS., though itself written in A. H. 1074, professes to 
be transcribed from one (probably an autograph) dated A. H. 
306. But it is obvious that there is a serious error (of at least 
300 years) in the date assigned to the original MS. in the 
colophon, for from the introduction it appears that it was 
dedicated to the Atabak Shihabu'd-Din Tughril Beg, who fell 
from power in A. H. 629 (A. D. 1231-2) and died in A. H. 631 
(A. D. 1233). See de Slane's Ibn Khallikdn, vol. iv, pp. 424, 
432, and 433. No mention of this work is made by H.K/i. 
in his enumeration (vol. i, p. 490, No. 1467) of works of a 
similar character; nor can I find any mention of it elsewhere.

feld's lithographed edition (Gottingen, Paris, 1876-1877). In 
an elaborate note by Henry Bradshaw, dated Dec. 22, 1864, 
which is prefixed to the volume, it is described as " not made 
up of two imperfect books, but is a large fragment of an old 
copy made into a complete one by transcribing from another. 
The copy of which the fragment forms part was divided into 
three volumes as follows : vol. i, A-J ; vol. ii, H-M ; vol. iii, 
N-Y. But that from which the remainder was transcribed 
must have been divided into three volumes differently thus : 
vol. i, A-R ; vol. ii, Z-M ; vol. iii, N-Y. Of the old copy 
volumes i and iii are wanting, and vol. ii consisted originally 
of 190 leaves, of which i, 2, 33-38, 41-50, 61-110, 112-119, 
189 and 190 are now wanting. I have numbered the leaves 
of this copy on the upper inner margin ; and have put 
signatures to the quires, aa-tt. The made-up copy, as it now 
stands, consists of 343 leaves, which I have numbered on the 
upper outer margin throughout. I have also put signatures 
to the quires as follows: vol. i, foil. 1-160, a*-x* ; vol. ii, 
foil. 161-237, aa*-kk* ; vol. iii, foil. 238-343, aaa*-lll*." [The 
leaves measure 25*4 x 16*3 c., and contain 21 11. in the old 
parts, and 25 11. in the new. The old is in a fine, clear naskh, 
fully pointed ; the new in a fair naskh with rubrications. 
The colophon to vol. i (on f. i6o a ) gives the date of completion 
as Monday the 27th of Jumada II, A. H. noo; scribe, 
Ibrahim b. Sulaymfin b. Muhammad b. 'Abdu'l-'AzIz al-

The colophon to vol. iii (on f. 343 a ) gives the date of 
completion as Sunday the 3rd of Rajab, A. II. 1095. The 
scribe's name has here been erased. This portion was copied

A good copy of the rare and curious work entitled 
NihdyatJil-irab fl akhbdr? l-Furs ivdl-Arab ila akhdliil- 
Muslimln Fars, containing the legendary and actual history 
of the Arabs and Persians (especially the Sasanian dynasty) 
down to the Muhammadan Conquest. Although the alleged 
compilation of this work by 'Amir ash-Shitbi (A. H. 19-104), 
Ayyub b. al-Qirriyya (put to death by al-Hajjaj b. Yusuf early 
in the 8th century of our era) and the celebrated 'Abdu'llah 
b. al-Muqaffa l (put to death in A. H. 1 39) is, for chronological 
reasons, hardly possible, while the preamble by al-Asm^i 
(d. aet. 90 in A. H. 828), who is stated to have re-edited 
and supplemented the work for Harunu'r-Rashld, is very 
suspicious, the actual contents of the book, especially in what 
concerns Sasanian history, appear to merit more attention 
than is implied in the disparaging remarks of Professor 
Noldeke (GescJtichte d. Pers. u. Arab, zur Zeit d. Sasanideu,

A Sikandar-nama, or Book of the Gests of Alexander, 
in Turkish verse, in the ramal metre, wanting both beginning

occupied by an account of the history of the world before 
Alexander, and of its subsequent history down to the time 
of the Ottoman Sultans Orkhan, Murad I, Bayazld I and 
his son Prince Sulayman, during whose brief rule at Adria- 
nople this poem was evidently composed, since he is spoken 
of as still reigning in the following verses : 





It would appear certain, then, that this is the Iskandar-

ranged, in a cow-skin wallet or case. There are about 296 
leaves (of 20*3 x 15-8 c. and, in most parts, about 10 11. to the 
page), most of which are entirely detached, so that, since in 
addition to this the catch-words are often wanting, it would 
require an amount of time and labour altogether dispropor- 
tionate to the result to arrange them in order. It is, more- 
over, very doubtful whether all the leaves are extant. Leaves 
from different books in different African hands (all very 
coarse and bad) are commingled.

lacunae, from a MS. taken from the ruins of Bona by Major 
Charles Jenkinson in Nov. 1897. The work is too defective 
to be identified, but is of a religious character, though it 
appears to contain traditions of the Prophet rather than 
prayers.

1388 Add. 301 

Part (Maqalas iii-xii) of a work on Medicine, which 
appears, from the colophons at the end of several sections, 
to be entitled Usulul-jawahirM-maknftna wal-ulumi'l-makh- 
zuna. The author's name has been purposely obliterated in 
part wherever it occurs. So far as legible, it appears to read 
Muhammad b. 'Umar (?) b. Muhammad b. ad-Daya (?). The 
MS., dated A. H. 600, is written in a very fine old naskh, and 
contains ff. 127 of 24-8 x i8'O c. and 15 11.; rubrications. It 
begins : 

<J?l> 



Maqala iii, which discusses the influences of the days, 
months and seasons, celestial signs, such as rainbows, comets, 
eclipses, and the like, ends on f. 36 a . It is followed by

Part (chapters xiii-xlii) of a comprehensive work on

defective at both beginning and end, comprises ff. 235 of 
22-9 x 17-8 c. and 25 11., and is written in large, fairly legible, 
naskh hands of approximately the same type and period, 
viz. the thirteenth or fourteenth century of our era.] The 
first complete section in this volume treats of diseases of the 
chest and lungs, pleurisy, pericarditis, &c. On f. 6 a is cited 
(in ch. xv) Avicenna's treatise on palpitation of the heart.

rather cursive ta'llq, and bears the date A. H. 1241. 1hz second 
is a treatise on Therapeutics by Muhammad 'Abdu'llah 
al-Haklm entitled, apparently, al-Mujarrabdtush-sJidfiya^ 
of which the Preface, written in Arabic, begins : 



This second part of the MS. occupies ff. 58 b -iO7 a , and is

two vols., Hh. 6. 1 (t iM) comprises pp. 594 of 20*1 x I5'6 c. 
and 17 11.; while Hh. 6. 2 (b ^o) comprises pp. 632 of

standing in the abjad order. They are nearly uniform in 
size, the pages measuring about 3r2X2O'O c. Many ad-

A volume of 60 ff, representing fragments of numerous 

different MSS. in various handwritings. The leaves measure 
i6'8 x ir2 c., or somewhat less, and contain a varying 
number of lines. None of the fragments are complete, none 
seem to be of any value, and in most cases leaves taken from 
the same fragment are arranged in wrong order. The principal 
contents are: (i) Ff. 1-4. A few Turkish letters, with some 
interlinear glosses in Italian. (2) F. 5. One leaf from an 
Arabic religious work. (3) Ff. 6-8. Three pages from the 
Turkish dlwdn of Sham' I. (4) Ff.9-14. Part of the well-known 
Arabic poem entitled the Burda. (5) Ff. 15-18. Another

hardly merits so much description.

393 : see L. C., vol. i, pp. 143-144 ; Ibn Khallikdn, de Slane's 
translation, vol. iii, pp. 108-110). The total number of letters 
contained in the collection amounts to about 153, of which 
the first 22 are missing from Add. 749, which is defective at 
the beginning. Many of them are addressed to contemporary 
kings, rulers, wazlrs and governors of note, such as Muhammad

[1501-1509] BURCKHARDT PAPERS. [Add. 273- Add. 282 

1501 Add. 273 

A volume of 184 numbered (blank) pages of 36*8 x 23-1 c., 
into which are fastened a number of papers and letters thus 
described in a note on the inside of the cover. " The papers 
contained in this book were selected from a larger number 
entrusted by the late Mr Louis Burckhardt, the Oriental 
traveller, to the care of Mr John Fiott, now Dr Lee. They 
were sent from Damascus in June, 1812, and received at 
Malta in April, 1814. Some of the parcels were endorsed 
with directions that they should not be opened until the 
year 1820, unless Mr Burckhardt should return to England 
before that period. On receiving intelligence of the death of 
Mr Burckhardt at Cairo in 1819, Dr Lee thought it right to 
open the parcels in the presence of the Rev. G. C. Renouard, 
one of Mr Burckhardt's friends, in order to examine their 
contents. Some of the parcels contained letters and other 
documents of a private nature. These were either destroyed, 
or sent to the persons who appeared to have a claim to them. 
Several contained literary exercises, extracts and notes, which 
Dr Lee and his friend thought they might venture to retain 
as memorials of the indefatigable industry of one whose 
talents and perseverance they had often admired. The re- 
mainder contained letters, extracts from manuscripts, fermans 
and other official papers in the Oriental languages, evidently 
collected as specimens of different kinds of literary composi- 
tion, and as such presenting useful information for the Arabic 
student. These, it appeared in the opinion of Mr Renouard, 
most proper to preserve, and they therefore have been by 
that gentleman arranged and inserted in this volume, now

presented to the University of Cambridge with a request 
that it may be permitted to be placed in the University 
Library with the other books and papers bequeathed to the 
University by the liberality of Mr Burckhardt in his will. 
December, 1823." There are in all 45 pieces and 4 drawings 
(an Arab of Aleppo, a Bedouin woman, a tent of the Bedouin 
Arabs, and a battle from some European design). A com- 
plete list of these documents in Renouard's hand is prefixed 
to the volume. The pieces include vocabularies, dialogues, 
extracts, remarks on the coffee-trade at Aleppo in A.D. 1805, 
a list of current prices in Aleppo in A.D. 1809, a Druze 
catechism, lists of governors and officials, a genealogy of 
Jazzar Pasha, Police-regulations of Aleppo, table of cyphers, 
account of an engagement between the Turks and Wahhabis 
near Baghdad in September, a copy of the forged covenant 
of Muhammad the Prophet with the Christians, questions 
concerning the Rlhanlu tribe, geographical memoranda on 
Syria and the Hawran, verses, petitions, letters, buyuruldus> 
agreements, receipts, certificate of horse's pedigree and 
qualities, fatwds, bills, &c.

sisting of 8 ff. of 1 8'0 x 1 1-3 c.; the second ($) also of 8 ff. of 
the same size; the third (6) of 2 ff. of 14-8 x icxoc.; the 
fourth (7) of 3 ff. uniform with the last ; the fifth (8) of one 
single leaf uniform with the first and second. The first 
begins with an account of the mission of Moses for the 
deliverance of the Jews, and ends with a statement of the 
various important events in the history of the Children of 
Israel which happened on the ^JUI ju*. The second com- 
prises 43 short sections or chapters on Jewish history, 
beginning with Joshua the son of Nun. The third appears 
to be a continuation of the last, from the middle of ch. 43 to 
the end of ch. 45, which is followed by a sort of doxology. 
The fourth contains an account of Alexander the Great. 
'V\\c fifth contains only a few variants (13 11.) furnished by

Add. 2887-2915 

Such of these as are in Arabic have already been described, 
but a brief enumeration of the whole series in this place may 
be convenient. Add. 2887-2888 are Syriac ; 2889 is a 
history (Kitdbu't-tawdrikh) in Karstium by Sllb h a b. Yuhanna; 
289O-29O2 are Arabic, and have already been described 
(see infra Part Hi, under these class-marks) ; 29O3 com- 
prises ten pieces (Syriac letters, &c.); 29O4-29O5 have 
been described above, under Nos. 1417 and 1418; 29O6- 
2913 are state papers, placed amongst the Oriental Ad- 
versaria, and are in detail as follows. Add. 29O6, Badger 
papers No. I, Aden and Persia (see P. C., pp. 199-201);

1541 Add. 3199 

Eighteen sheets of paper, measuring 197 x 13-3 c., on 
which are mounted a number of papyrus-fragments inscribed 
with Coptic and Arabic, chiefly the former. These fragments 
are, for the most part, very small, and have a merely palrco- 
graphical interest. 



III. CLASS-MARKS OF ALL MANUSCRIPTS 
DESCRIBED IN THIS HAND-LIST, 
ARRANGED CONSECUTIVELY. 



In the following table, intended principally for the use of the 
Library officials, the class-marks are arranged consecutively, preceded 
by ordinal numbers. The number in brackets which follows each 
class-mark indicates the approximate height of the MS. in inches, the 
volumes being arranged on the shelves according to size. These sizes 
were formerly reckoned like ages, so that, for instance, all volumes 
over 9 and under 10 inches in height were marked (9), and so on. 
Recently, however, the practice has been to take the nearest number 
of inches, so that, for example, a MS. of which the height exceeds 
9^ inches is marked (10), not (9). The italic letters following these 
numbers indicate the language or languages in which the MS. in 
question is written, viz. a. Arabic ; of. Afghani or Pakhtu ; copt. 
Coptic ; e. English ; ger. German ; gr. Greek ; h. Hindustani or 
Urdu; heb. Hebrew; /'/. Italian; /. Latin; m. Malay; /. Persian; 
pahl. Pahlavl; panj. PanjabI ; sp. a. Spanish in Arabic character 
("Textos Aljamiados ") ; syr. Syriac; /. Turkish. In the second 
column are noted the sources whence the MSS. were derived, so far as 
these can now be ascertained, together with the date of acquisition. The 
numbers in the third and last column indicate the articles under which 
the MSS. are respectively described, either in Part I (Nos. 1-1294) 
or Part //(Nos. 1295-1541). Of some composite MSS. fully described 
in my Persian Catalogue {Cambridge, 1896) only the more important 
contents are noticed in this Hand-list under separate headings. In such 
cases a reference to that work (denoted by the abbreviation P. C.)folloivs 
the number or numbers in the third column.

references of a general character. Of the proper names, those of authors 
represented in this collection are marked with an asterisk (*) ; those of scribes 
with a dagger (t) ; and those of former owners with a double line (||). Numbers 
enclosed in brackets and following a name denote dates of the hijra, unless 
otherwise specified. A hyphen prefixed to a name indicates that it should be 
preceded by the Arabic definite article: e.g. -Hariri stands for al- Hariri. The 
prefixes Abfi, Bft, Ibn, Banu are disregarded in the alphabetical arrangement.
